Liberal Ad: Tea Party ‘Chumps’ Conned by GOP (Video)

November 19, 2010

(ChattahBox Political News)—The Progressive group Americans United For Change is out with a new ad opposing the extension of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. The satirical spot shows two wealthy bankers puffing on cigars and sipping Cognac, with a copy of Karl Rove’s book “Courage and Consequence” between them, as they pat themselves on the back for joining with the Republicans to con the tea party members into voting to make rich people richer and the poor poorer.

The ad, called “CONNED: Don’t Let Wall Street Win Again” will run in national cable markets to put pressure on Congress to let the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy expire.

The Wall Street moguls in the ad are expecting their $700 billion tax cut, as promised by the GOP lawmakers they bankrolled, the day after the midterm elections.

“That was too easy. We had those Republicans running around screaming about deficits and jobs. And the tea party types bought it.  Sure, we’ll cut the deficit. Right after we get our $700 billion tax cuts.”

“Trust us we’ll cut spending. Yes, let’s start with unemployment benefits. And as for jobs, don’t worry chumps we’re going to create tons of them— In Asia.”

“Don’t let Them win again. NO More Bush Tax Cuts for Millionaires,” reads the text at the end of the ad.

The Republicans are prepared to do whatever it takes to make sure their rich friends get to keep more of their money, while they block the extension of unemployment benefits and refuse to extend middle class tax cuts, unless the rich are included.

There are indications now, that the Democrats in the House and the Senate are prepared to tell the Republicans to stuff it and force a vote on extending middle class tax cuts only.

Let’s hope that’s the case.

    It is a very funny to stay repeating how “difficult” all of this is. The deception is too large to be a privacy and the proof is all around country not to reference, lots of very smart people could pick these deception apart in a minute. Their intentional status as the ultimate insider brings into question the plan that the majority of us has a chance of making money off investments.
